Nayeema has apologized: Police
‘Can’t Withdraw Case’
Srinagar, June 14: The police today said that London-based Kashmiri journalist Nayeema Ahmad Mahjoor has apologized for her Facebook comment for which she was booked under IT Act.
Nayeema was charged for spreading “disaffection” and “inciting violence” after she opined her views on the social networking site regarding the killing in Lal Chowk on June 6.
“She has sent us an apology email for her Facebook update,” Inspector General of Police Kashmir, SM Sahai said. “We will definitely consider her apology in positive terms,” he said.
He, however, said that police was not competent enough to withdraw the case following her apology.
“Nayeema’s apology will definitely help in investigation. It will also mitigate circumstances pertaining to the case,” Sahai said. “We will look at the case positively now onwards. Our intent from the outset was not to harm or examine anybody.”
While writing her views on Facebook on June 6 at 6:48 pm, Nayeema wrote, “Why did police kill this man in Lal Chowk? Any reason?”
Talking to KNS over phone from London, Nayeema had said, “I didn’t blame police on Facebook, but quoted some media reports as why police will kill the businessman. Police should have looked into what I had written on Facebook and then reacted.”
